DownvoteDon Posted December 16, 2019 Share Posted December 16, 2019 Kyle Shanahan has already filed a protest with the NFL office because the Falcons ran multiple (successful) screenplays in flagrant violation of the team’s NFL charter. Throughout the annals of Falcon history, from Steve Bartkowski to Chris Chandler to Michael Vick and of course Matt Ryan, (and even Joey Harrington) when the offensive line has been thin, or facing an aggressive, tough defensive line, our quarterbacks have been compelled to just take the abuse rather than tactically counter the oppositions pass rush. Unbeknownst to most fans, this is not the result of myopic coaching, but, in fact, was an unfortunate concession required during negotiations for the city’s franchise back in 1966. At the time, the team was in the smallest potential market in the country, and they had to give up something to snag the expansion franchise from other larger markets. Quinn intends to contest the appeal by asserting that the charter prohibited running back screens, and today’s success was with tight end screens. The team’s lawyers are currently in nursing homes consulting with the drafters of the Team’s original charter, and pouring through archives to determine whether this technicality will have merit.
